ROR Vendor fees?

Recommended Posts

I've been receiving some mixed information about the outside vendor fees from ROR. I was told that they would charge $200 per vendor (I have two photographers coming) to shoot my photos. Last I thought, ROR didn't charge these fees. Anyone have a different experience?

From what I understand you must pay a per guest charge for anyone coming to the resort who's not a guest. I'm having one photog come so I must pay the fee for a 1 day guest pass for him which I'm not really sure the price of. I've heard it's between $80-$100. Other than that if you have someone like Tai Flora supplying flowers or decorations, or a baker bringing a cake there are no fees for that as those people just dropping off items and leaving.

The contract I got from Riu weddings says $200, when I got an  email from the WC, the sheet said $350 for a photographer. But if the photographer is an actual guest at your wedding (part of your group), I don't think they can charge you a fee.  It's like telling my dad he cant take pics :) ... I'm going to try and argue the $150 difference as in the contract from Riu Weddings, this fee wasn't subject to change.

Yea, check out the website.  It says the normal vendor price and later down the page lists the photog price as much higher.  If anyone is able to neg the price please let us know here

I have asked the WC via email and she has replied saying that the vendors fee is $350 and this includes photographers, florists, bakers etc! Personally i think this is obscene!!!! Can't imagine the cost if people are using all outside vendors. This is another example of how RIU does its best to rip us brides off!

I don't get it, really.  It's so weird that the contract we receive from RIU wedding says $200 and then  a week later it's changed by the WC to $350.  I'm using an outside photographer, and I willd definately bring this up with them. $150 is $150 that I can use to send my parents on an excursion.

I was told by Keisha if I was using an outside florist is they would charge me $200 and for an outside photographer they are charging $350 which is insane.

Insane and odd... I would of thought that a vendor is a vendor, regardless the profession...
